Two of my cousins from Montana are visiting. Today we took the bus to Gempen and tramped through the woods until we found the look-out tower and the Gempenturm restaurant, where we enjoyed cappuccinos, a long talk with the Egyptian server about American politics, and later, Rivella sodas for everyone as his treat.

Coming up: medieval towns, a cloister, and a jodelfest. Evidence that we're having fun, and I'm feeding them:

Descending the tower in sunny Gempen today.

Stuffed peppers and beet salad for supper.

After dinner ball-room dancing. Duh. :)


  1. Thanks for feeding them. Make them earn their keep by cleaning up, eh? the momma

  2. Did you say "Shucran" to the waiter?
